that the substance matters here. the republicans knew they couldn't fight president obama on the debt ceiling. they should have just extended it sbeerly. i think there are some republicans who learned some lessons who broke with the party to vote with aid for the victims of hurricane sandy. so i think this sort of meeting is sort of the top line of people wanting to say it's just organization. but i think below that, there are republicans who know their problems run deeper. >> i don't doubt that, but i think that the bad signal is, for example, how are you going to say you're going to have change re-elect the same chairman in reince priebus, who we learned this week, had clint east wo east's empty chair in his office. to have that as some symbol that you want to recognize other than if you use an example to show how you lost an election, how dumb we could be. i mean, what -- can you re-e lek elect this guy's chair? >> look, we are in a two-party system. but the parties recon fizz your themselves. so, for example, there was ultimately a moment when the party shifted and where those democrats h
party is in trouble. republicans were forced to back down on the debt ceiling. president obama layout a liberal agenda for his seconterm. the gop is out of favor with the young, minorities, and women, and not just at the ballot box. 49% of the nation now sees the republican party negatively. only 26% see it positively, democrats doing far better with a net positive. >> republicans talk policy and the democrats talk people. >> we have got to stop being the stupid party. >> the louisiana gov. bobby children -- bobby gentle -- bobby jindal. >> it is no secret that we have republicans damaged the party with offensive and bizarre comments. we have had enough of that. >> virginia legislature wanted to change the electoral maps. >> says forget that keeping the gop will recover. >> we have a lot of work to do. we have cleaning up to do. we have making up to do. we have stretching out to do to bring people in. >> today could be a start. >> unlikely plan will be to emphasize attacks -- a likely plan will be to emphasize the tax plan. wbal tv-11 news. >> thousands of anti-abortion activists marc
. look there's a reason why the republicans in the white house caved on the debt ceiling. the public is not with them on these issues. >> don't know. kate, you have a little different view. i think republicans now back in the driver's seat because they cooperated on raising the debt ceiling. they forced the senate democrats to put up a budget. the next thing will be the continuing resolution, short term spending cuts. i think the gop by stopping taxes is back in play, they are back in play. >> i love your optimism, larry. i wish i could be jumping up and down with you. but i'm afraid the republicans are in full retreat. i'm hoping -- i know they won't agree to this tax increase. the senator is absolutely right. but the problem is the democrats are using this as another opportunity to put republicans of throwing granny off the cliff, caring only about their millionaire and billionaire buddies. patty murray said we'll put it on the people who best can afford it. it worked for president obama, the democrats, like the cbs news political director said is to go for the jugular, to cut the

that they back down on the debt ceiling debate was a good thing in the sense. came over. we saw that before. so start to change public opinion. forced the democrats to increase the debt ceiling and start to win over the public. david: one other thing that is extraordinary, how? you have a media that allows statements such as the following. this is a statement that was made back in 2011 about the 2000 volt budget. this budget includes a five-year non security discretionary spending freeze, reducing the deficit and this will bring spending to the lowest level since president eisenhower sat in the oval office. statements like this are so far removed from the truth. in fact, this president has increased spending to 25 percent of gdp, whereas it was 20 percent of the bush ministration. it was 16 percent under eisenhower. so they say these things and the press does not correct in. have you went public opinion that that? >> i think that was set on saturday night live, was the? david: no. taken seriously. >> well, first, you get a spokesman. the "wall street journal" said the other day, each house shou

to deal with. debt ceiling debate now postponed until may. the sequestering, the continuing resolution. and republicans are pushing for changes in entitlements. is this in large part about where the white house decides where to put its political capital? >> kwlourks know what, we have also forgotten in this discussion, we remain in the midst of a terrible, terrible recession. counting people who have given up looking for work and underemployed. we are looking at -- almost 15% of our population who is unemployed, who don't have jobs. real wages for millions of workers are going down. the gap between the very, very wealthy and everybody else is growing wider. so what concerns me is, yeah, you have to deal with gun control. deal with a lot of other issues, but we cannot -- we cannot forget the reality that tens and tens of millions of working people are really hurting. >> how would you prioritize then again if you have to figure out where you're going to put your political capital? how would you prioritize. there was a big headline today the stock market is at a five-year high, unemployme
with the debt ceiling. so the sequester is the next thing that republicans -- >> yes, sequester and the budget. and, i don't know what richard things, but my view was -- >> hasn't been a budget in four years -- >> there has been a budget. not a stand-alone budget. they just keep continuing the budget that already exists. >> is that a problem? >> it can be a problem. >> how do you -- >> i think it was -- i blame partisanship in washington. i don't think that's any one person's fault by any means. i think not making the fight about the debt ceiling, which has the unfortunate downside that if you mess it up, the u.s. government defaults, and it's a financial catastrophe, this was a sign of maturity. i think on the republicans' part that let's make it about the budget. so the budget is now going to come to so-called continuing resolution. they're going to have to have a fight about a government shutdown. this is what they should be arguing about. what does the government spend money on? what should it spend money on? how much revenue should be coming in? let's make the argument about that, not abo
're going to do this at point a, point b, laterfore point c and the same thing with the debt ceiling. everything we do is temporary and this is especially with the gridlock between the republicans with a majority in the house and democrats in the senate. this doesn't, you know, excuse the president from sitting down and talking about the issues, but i don't feel that he's said, okay, these issues don't matter and i don't think they've been on the back burner, i think everyone is very clear with where the president stands as to what his ideas and the democratic philosophy is with regard to job creation, and what we need to do with the economy. the republicans are clear. congress needs to sit down and work this out. the president's not their baby sitter, not running a day care center and the american people need to make our congressional electorates and our senators that are elected, we need to make it known what we want. those are our priorities and by the way, heidi, yesterday, california lowest foreclosure rate in the month of january in years. and that's a step in the right directi
to go along with the debt ceiling change, they had to promise that paul ryan was going to produce a budget in a week that would balance the budget in ten years with no revenue increases. >> right. >> now, when you see what is going to happen to spending in order to meet those numbers, i'd like to see her go out there and say, this is the kind of thing the republican party should get behind and run behind because it's going to be ugly. >> richard wolffe, mary matalin is positive. there aren't a lot of republicans right now who are given what's happened. but again, we see shifts in party allegiances fairly quickly. it just does seem like my party is suffering a long-term letdown. to say the least. >> yeah. look, mary has a strong character, as we all know. the truth is that the president actually won and he won pretty big for his ideas. i didn't -- by the way, the president talking about cap and trade in his inaugural. he didn't say how he would address climate change. he said we have to address the impact of it. the question for republicans, i think, is what's the big idea? and it
the republicans over a barrel with the debt ceiling coming up with no time to announce any long-term balance budget framework or any kind of structural reforms to heanlt retirement programs. we had the short-term extension to give each chamber to go through order and pass a budget in our house. obviously, paul ryan and his team will work through, i think even a bolder budget to send to the senate. the senate and the president might not accept the bill we passed. but in fact, they are going to pass the bill and the president is going to sign it. as speaker boehner said, this is something the house should continue to do. we are in the opposition but we're in the majority but as the opposition we should take the opportunity to paint bold principles and stand by those and then we can campaign on those in the next two years. >> so, tom, you are a conservative. did you become conservative at some point, are you a natural born conservative? >> right from the beginning. i grew up in a very small town. my parents were not political at all. my father would not put up a yard sign until my campaign, tha
emanuel is live on capitol hill with more. when we take up the debt ceiling deal? reporter: the senate is likely to take up the bill some time next week. they are required to pass a budget by april 15. bottom line, fiscal conservative senators are loving it. >> they have really written some good budgets, tough budget that they have defended, but the democratic senate has just a few. they say send more money. they need the american people to send more money. we don't need a budget to tell you where the money is going to be. so i think that they understand. >> some are complaining that the senate democrats refused to do about it for three years in a row. finally, now that the house has passed the measure and we start to hear the senate democrats saying that they are going to do a budget. jon: is part of that deal, they are required to pass it by april 15, or else no budget and no pay. they will ultimately get paid down the road, but for those who are not part of the millionaires club, no paycheck, even in the short term. arthel: what are the democrats in the senate saying? are you feelin
